The Slovak National Motorway Company has awarded two public tenders worth a combined €42.5m (£36.8m) to CzechToll for a new electronic toll system in Slovakia.
CzechToll, a subsidiary of ITIS Holding, which also owns SkyToll, said it won both tenders despite offering the lowest bids.
CzechToll will now build an electronic toll system, provide technical support services and a range of toll services.
These services include the supply of OBUs, logistics and distribution of OBUs to carriers, payment infrastructure and the operation of customer service points.
CzechToll reportedly beat three opposing bid to win the first tender, which includes the delivery of the key information system and five years of technological support, at a price of €13.8m (£11.95m) excluding VAT.
“In the tender, we submitted a bid based on the same technical solution that we successfully implemented together with our Slovak partner SkyToll in the Czech Republic in 2019,” said Matej Okáli, chairman of the board of directors of ITIS Holding.
“As a result of a proper design, the system in the Czech Republic today is one of the most efficient toll collection systems in the world.”
CzechToll said it also fought off competition from two other two bidders for toll services tender, with a winning bid of €28.7m (£24.85m) excluding VAT.
ITIS Holding confirmed that sister companies SkyToll andTollNet will also participate in both contracts.
